hi this is kat with beadaholique.com now these are exclusive beadaholique.com and we have five beautiful color varieties for you to choose from so these are going to be just really gorgeous dangly earrings so we have some silver and gold there for you to choose from and you can shop the website to get all five so what I'm going to do in this video is I'm going to walk you through the very simple steps to make one full earring and then of course naturally you'll just simply repeat to make the second earring so what do you get in your kit you're going to get your findings and for this kit that includes two earring hooks a couple of head pins and a couple of eye pins we're going to give you two different sizes of beads we have eight millimeter here and six millimeter and then I have three different sizes of bead caps and we're going to be using those and kind of stacking those in this design and I'll show you how to do that so very simply four tools the only tools that you're gonna need are very basic tools so we have a pair of flush cutters a pair of chain nose pliers and a pair of round nose pliers so if you have everything ready to go let's go ahead and get started so we're gonna work our way from the bottom up so the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to take one of my head pins now it has that little tail there at the end that makes it different from an eye pin so this is our head pin so we're going to string on one of the smallest size of our bead caps with that little bead opening sort of facing up there so it looks like a little flower that sits there and then what we're gonna do is we're gonna string on one of our eight millimeter beads and string that all the way down and then take the largest bead cap that you have and go ahead and string that on top and let that sit right on top of that bead and then finally take another one of those small bead caps and we're gonna flip it over so that it sits as though that little flower is facing downwards so this is what we have so far on our head pin now we're gonna take our round nose pliers come in here right at the base of that eyepin excuse me right at the top of that bead cap there and we're gonna bend that backwards till it has a nice little angle just like so and we're gonna wrap it up and over at the top of our round nose pliers and you'll probably need to rotate just a little bit to bring that across and to make a little simple wire loop now come in with your flush cutters and get as close as you can and snip that little tail of the wire off so now what we can do is we can take our little chain nose pliers here and we're gonna come in and we're just going to close up that little loop there at the bottom just keep by giving it a little squeeze so we have our first little component now we're gonna move on and we're gonna pick up one of our eye pins and for this one we're gonna pick up one of the medium-sized bead caps again with that sort of flower than facing upwards we're gonna string on our 8 millimeter bead and another one of our medium bead caps so we have a nice little component there so again we're gonna do something very similar here we're gonna take our round nose pliers and we're going to bend that backwards and sort of pinch it and go up and over the top same as we did before rotating our pliers and bringing that around right in front of it to make that little simple wire loop so now we're gonna go ahead and come in with our flush cutters give that a little trim and take our chain nose pliers there and just sort of adjust our little loop just make sure it's nice and closed alright so there's our next component so for the last component here we're gonna take one of our small bead caps again with the opening facing up now we're going to take one of our 6 millimeter beads slide that on take another 6 millimeter or excuse me another of the small bead caps and slide it on top of that 6 millimeter and come in with our round nose pliers again give it that nice little Bend going backwards and up and over the top bringing that across and coming in with our flush cutters to give that a nice little trim alright so now we have our three components built and ready to go so now what we're gonna do is we're gonna again work our way from the top going up so we're going to come to the bottom loop and just give it a little twist and this is our medium component so we're going to attach it to that bottom component there and just close that up and then go ahead and move to this top piece here I'm gonna rotate that in my hand and just give it a little twist open that up and we're gonna slip that on close it up and then to the other side here now this is that one little loop that I didn't really close well and that's okay because we're just gonna open that up slip on our earring hook and now we can close up our loop there we go so there you have a nova earring so that is one earring there and like I said you just repeat that entire process to make the second earring so you'll have enough components to make one full pair of the earrings so go ahead and choose your favorite color and enjoy again you can get all of these
